Eventide is promoting the BD600E broadcast obscenity delay, which features control capabilities that the company says allow further integration into automated systems.
It offers 16 bipolar opto-isolated inputs that may be configured to drive several BD600E functions or as general-purpose delay inputs; 16 open-collector outputs that may be configured to display BD600E status indicators or to pass through delayed versions of the inputs; and an RS-232 output that provides a delayed version of the input, which Eventide says is useful for driving a time display or for other control purposes.
Existing BD600s can be upgraded. The company says that like the BD600, the BD600E features improved audio performance and expanded obscenity delay capabilities up to 80 seconds.
Additional features include Sneeze, which prevents throat clearing, coughing or other noises from going over the air; Rebuild, which rebuilds the delay buffer after a portion of audio has been removed; and Ramp-to-Zero, which gradually backs out of the buffer at the end of a program.
The Panic function stores a WAV file on a Compact Flash card to be played when the button is pressed. While the file, which may be a jingle or station ID or other message, is played, the delay buffer is rebuilding.
